4 streaming services that offer a student discount

There aren’t a lot of college students who are flush with cash. But that doesn’t change the fact that everybody needs to take a break from the books once in a while. Luckily, streaming services like Spotify, Amazon and more offer student discounts to people enrolled in a college or university.

Amazon Prime

Signing up for Amazon Prime Student will get you a six-month trial courtesy of Sprint, for new members only.
